In 2002, attention was given to the countless homeless children in India. Opening an orphanage is something All India Mission had never intended to do. AIM’s mobile medical team visited several villages, and Dr. Haribabu shared with N.J. (All India Mission’s president) that there were many children there without parents. Most of the children’s parents died either from an accident or a disease.
After many requests by Dr. Haribabu, All India Mission opened its first orphanage in 2002 with five children. We provide the children with food, clothing, shelter and education. They’re intelligent, highly capable, and doing very well in their studies. Some of the children are going to be medical doctors, some nurses, and some pastors.
Running an orphanage requires tremendous commitment and dedication. Today we have four orphanages providing for approximately 150 children.
